I'll looks at the tubes once they cool and let you know exactly what I have.

I also have a little dot mk1 that I run with my 11.32 and its pretty close to silent again noise shows up near max volume with no music playing... Honestly listening at that volume with music playing you would have a lot of other things to worry about besides noise lol.

Nice!  Thanks for the info.  I see you have the AD2000s and they can be picky with sensitivity.  Is the LD in your sig the I+?  And you can use the 6DJ8/6922 and 6CG7/6GU7 tubes with strapping/adapters?  or is it another amp altogether?

 

Thanks!

The 2000x is not as picky as the old 2000 was.

the little dot I have is indeed an mk1+ I'm running a customs adapter and dc regulator so I can run a wide variety of tubes.

Awesome!!!

 

I'm listening to a Westinghouse 6GU7 (6CG7 drop-in) in an SP amp now with some Ultrasones.

 

Cheers!!!

I did not know the noise floor on the LYR was a tube hiss, My ampsandsound se84 is dead quiet with volume at max, it puts out 3 WPC drives the he-500 easily,  I can barely get to the 10 oclock on most albums, for what ever reason I have run across some albums that are recorded very low and I have to bump the volume to 12

post #1236 of 2387
Part of it was tube related... I have a ton of 6dj8's and it seems to like some better then others. The lyr is quiet as long as it has an appropriate load OR has tubes that work well with lesser loads. Orthos and high impedance loads produce a very quiet background regardless of tube choice. Basically its quiet when its used for what it was designed to do... Outside its intended use it can become picky, but still very usable.

Good to know.  Thanks

 

some day maybe I will get to give one a shot, That much power on the he-500 should support better bass (although I dont feel bass is lacking now)  It is fun to play a little though

Apparently they're dropping the .32 bit for the new 2014 model and just calling it the NFB-11 (2014).  Anyone know what the differences are supposed to be?

Stuff I'll never use.  Maybe someone with an 11.32 will want to upgrade and sell me their 32.  (Wishful thinking!)  :biggrin:

LOL!!!

 

DACs are also taking the movie platform by storm...hahaha......It's not only about audio anymore.  Kingwa knows this and he will keep pumpin' them out accordingly.

I doubt i will go any further than audio and I know I am stopping in audio with my ripped lossless files, had all the clutter of lp's and Cd's I care to have ( not that I wont buy new music, It will just be more Hi rez downloads )  at 49 my hearing has its limits and going further than I am now is just a waste  IMHO

True.  I hear ya, but it's just a sign of the times.  Why not have a good dac that has many possibilities for whatever comes up next.

post #1245 of 2387

I understand that,  and to a degree if I were in the market for a new dac I would take that into consideration

 

I already have the schiit uber, and now have the 11:32 on the way.  I am very happy with the Schiit and honestly have had no desire to switch dacs. I was looking at SS amps when the 11:32 showed up at a good price and that's what drove the decision to audition it

 

the fact that the saber is in it is just a bonus:D
